Let me take a wild guess. They are using BMI for their obesity guide.  :shrug:

So, only healthy people get a decent break on insurance? Many over-weight people and smokers are healthy. I wonder what other health issues they are talking about? Whatever happened to pre existing conditions? I know many smokers who outlived their non smoking spouses. Before the smoking laws came into effect, I used to take a bunch of old people outside the nursing home to smoke, all in their 80s and more.
